Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Olivia said: ‘We were a bit scared to do reality TV as a couple. My mum was scared. She was worried about us being at the forefront of it all. But she loves it now.’

The pair told how they were more than happy to show all aspects of their relationship on the series but wanted their families kept away from the cameras.

Alex said: ‘TLC did our wedding programme. They never asked us to do anything we didn’t want to do. It’s happy and fun and loving.

‘It feels like so long ago now since we filmed it. When we watched it back, we had forgot half of it.’

‘We were happy to put across our lives,’ Olivia added. ‘The only thing we didn’t want to show was our families, certain people’s houses, stuff like that, because they didn’t ask for it.’

Olivia also said that having children is ‘on the cards’ for her and Alex one day and they have plans to get a new house soon which she said has a ‘family home vibe’. 

The couple also had their say on the upcoming first ever Winter Love Island, which will be filmed in South Africa, admitting they have mixed feelings about it.

‘I think Love Island should be in the summer,’ Alex said.

‘I do think it’s ITV’s cash cow and people will watch it,’ Olivia added. ‘I don’t blame them for doing it but the run up [to the start of the show] won’t be the same.

‘It’ll be tough for the contestants [to make their mark] because they won’t have as much time before the next series.’

This year’s series of Love Island was won by Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea who split after just five weeks together when the rugby player dumped her by text.

The pair were together a week and a half in the villa when they won, beating out runners up Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae who had been together since day 10.

Alex reckons the show has become more about the popularity of individual contestants rather than the couples. 

‘They were together 10 days on the show,’ he said. ‘Love Island is more about who’s your favourite person than the couple now. 

‘He seemed like a nice lad. It [being in the villa] is not the real part, the real part part is when you leave the villa.’
